Girona, Catalonia (Spain)

[CATALÀ]

Per tercer any consecutiu, a l'Espai de Ioga tenim el privilegi de rebre a la professora Carrie Owerko. Té el seu centre a Nova York, i cada any es convidada a centres de tot el mon on ensenya ioga amb la seva energia única. A més, últimament és una figura destacada de la revista Yoga Journal. No us perdeu el contacte amb una ioguini i persona excepcional; us convido a llegir les seves reflexions en el blog que trobareu més avall. Les condicions de l'intensiu són també molt propícies, perquè el curs es farà un gimnàs retirat del centre de Girona, amb molt de lloc per tots. L'intensiu està obert a practicants de qualsevol estil de ioga, amb uns 2 anys de pràctica. Vegeu en el programa que a més de la pràctica també hem donat temps per una xerrada.

Nota: l'intensiu serà en anglès, amb traduccions MOLT PUNTUALS al català o espanyol. Prendrem fotografies que compartirem un cop acabat el curs. Vegeu les de l'any passat aquí.

[ENGLISH]

Welcome to yoga with Carrie Owerko. We are happy to offer you a week-end full of yoga, with a great blend of asanas, pranayama, and the personal energy of Carrie.

The workshop is open to all students from any style of yoga, but you should have around 2 years of experience, with some home practice. Don't miss the chance to meet a true yoguini and excepcional woman; I invite you to browse her thought in the blog below. The workshop will be held in an ideal environment in a big gym outside of Girona (but within walking distance). Also the group is small and since meals are shared we'll make it a great ambiance. See that in addition to the practice of assanas, she'll be giving a talk on yoguic subjects.

As a pesonal gift from Carrie, she allows us to take many pictures of the workshop so we can practice the poses later at  home. Also, we are very happy to provide excellent tasty meals included in the price. A good time to build our yoguic network!

CARRIE OWERKO

Carrie Owerko has been teaching yoga and exploring the relationship between body, breath and mind for several years. She holds a Senior Intermediate Iyengar teaching credential and continues her studies with the Iyengar family by travelling to India on a regular basis, as well as by continuous and in-depth studies with her teacher, Patricia Walden.

Over the years she has performed in and co-choreographed many yoga demonstrations, including Live: Light on Life, performed at NYC's City Center during BKS Iyengar's Light on Life US National Book Tour in 2005.

Before studying yoga, Carrie worked as a Movement Analyst after having completed her studies at The Laban Institute in NYC. She studied theatre and dance in college and has spent years exploring human movement, meaning and communication.

Curiosity, openness, and affection are of the utmost importance in her approach to Iyengar Yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and the poetic imagination in the yoga practice. Most importantly, she loves to explore the relationship of discipline and playfulness and is a firm believer in the power of controlled folly.
